WAY FM Encourages Listeners To Participate in Service Projects
WAY-FM has just wrapped up a year-long effort to encourage it’s listeners to participate in local service projects, under the banner of “Live (service) Out”.
WAY-FM Chief Operating Officer Lloyd Parker says partnering with community non-profit organizations throughout the year, each WAY-FM station provided opportunities for service. Local WAY-FM staffs worked alongside listeners in projects ranging from over 50 listeners painting facilities and feeding homeless people in Kentucky at the Louisville Rescue Mission to serving and ministering to kids with terminal illnesses and their families at a special screening of Disney’s “The Jungle Book” through HopeKids North Texas in Dallas/Ft Worth.
In Colorado’s Front Range, WAY-FM worked with “Be The Gift” on three separate projects. For example, dozens of volunteers joined staff members in Colorado Springs in fixing up the home of a recently widowed mother of two. This included painting and cleaning the house and re-landscaping the exterior of the home. WAY-FM /Tallahassee partnered with The Florida Baptist Children’s Home. Two dozen listeners joined the staff in doing yard work, cleaning and sprucing up the kitchen and setting up game rooms for the kids.
The WAY-FM/Nashville staff recently joined 30 listeners in painting the walls at Alex Green Elementary School in Whites Creek, TN. For a quick look at this project click here…
WAY-FM Network air personalities joined in the efforts. Wally (pictured) from The WALLY Show noted, “The opportunity to serve those in need alongside the people who listen to our shows is a privilege. There is no better way to meet someone then when you both have to put down a paint brush to shake hands.”
In addition to events like these, WAY-FM committed $150,000 in free announcements for local non-profit organizations in WAY-FM communities throughout the country.
